Best and Worst of AEW Dynamite- 2 Former WCW stars return, New faction arrives
- Do you think DDP should wrestle another match?
Week after week, I'm more convinced of the gulf in talent that exists between the top-tier of AEW and the bottom tier. You have absolute Superstars that control the crowd from the word go, like Cody Rhodes and Chris Jericho and then, you have a bunch of promising talents that have a very long way to go before they get there.
It isn't even like WWE where unless you're Sting or AJ Styles, you have to invariably go through the WWE Performance Center and learn the basics. This is especially clear in the AEW women's division, where you have exceptional performers that just don't have it together at all.
That said, this motley crew of performers put on a pretty entertaining show this week, which was thankfully very different from the traditional WWE presentation, which is something I needed after the whole Survivor Series weekend. As good as the wrestling was, AEW is nothing like WWE and feels like a completely different show.
Let's begin with the best and worst, shall we?
#1 Best: MJF squares off with DDP
It was great to see two performers from two different generations square off in the middle of the ring. MJF was not cowed down by the legend that is DDP and Diamond Dallas Page did not back down from the massive Wardlow either, as the men went it at on this episode of AEW Dynamite.
As much as I enjoy the work of Hangman Page, I'm glad that it was MJF that won the ring because it will make him gloat for weeks on end. MJF needs the spotlight to shine on him for as long as possible because he is going to be the next big thing. Also, DDP is in absolutely great shape!
